My image of America
- Main contributor
National Educational Television
With frankness and sincerity, the young delegates describe their initial picture of America and the American way of life. They offer opinions formed before arriving in this country for the forum. The Italian delegate criticizes America's "Reader's Digest" mind and the Malayan girl speaks of her disappointment at seeing no flowers or green trees or birds and of her discomfort in the January cold. Drawing upon his knowledge of US soldiers stationed in his country, the Korean describes his impression of America. Although this program does not have the pace and spontaneity of the remainder of the series, the students offer some penetrating criticism of American folkways.
